There was once a golden age of soap operas on daytime television when a person could flip the channels between 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and find nothing but adventure, romance, and intrigue. Many long-term fans remember these days and have fond memories of the many actors and actresses who graced the screens during this period. While we all still love the shows on the air, many can’t help but wonder about some daytime legends and what they are doing today. Below is a list of 12 soap opera icons and what they are up to now.
12. Kimberly McCullough
General Hospital’s Robin Scorpio is part of an elite group of soap opera characters that only have had one actress play the same role, lasting decades. Kimberly McCullough jumped into the land of Port Charles at the age of eight and has grown as Robin has grown, never having to experience the crazy world of Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome (SORAS). What’s Kim up to lately? Aside from some pop-ins to Port Chuckles now and again, she has become a director, recently working an episode of the Netflix hit, Fuller House. She’s also taken an even more special role at home that of mom, giving birth to son Otis last June.
